Powerful Solar Flares Take Aim at Earth.
THE LATEST FROM SPACEWATCH
AN ALL-NEW MISSION CONTROL
Among the most important people working in mission control are the
system flight controllers. Each one is responsible for a specific
aspect to each mission. This was Bob Carlton's job on the Apollo
missions. He also had to suffer through Armstrong's "pranks" during
simulation programs...Meet the man in the hot seat: Bob "Control"
Carlton, today at 2:00PM ET on an all-new MISSION CONTROL, OVER.
OUR GERMANS ARE BETTER THAN THEIR GERMANS!
How many times did Americans hear that expression during the space
race with the Russians? The somewhat disturbing truth to the phrase
is that it did contain a touch of reality. For better or worse, the
Third Reich was the first government to sponsor any kind of rocket
program, veterans of which later went to work in the US and USSR.
COSMIC VISIONS is here to give us a full report on the Nazis in Space.

POWERFUL SOLAR FLARES TAKE AIM AT EARTH
Two large sunspots are expected to face directly at the Earth for
several days, starting on Wednesday. Such sunspots often bring solar
flares which can disrupt electrical systems and weather on Earth.
Sunspots, flares, and coronal mass ejections (CME's) are predicted
to increase as we approach an 11-year peak in solar activity.
CHANDRA MAPS COLLISION OF Galaxy CLUSTERS
The collision site, located in Galaxy cluster Abell 2142, resembles
a colossal weather system, only the cold front is 70 million degrees.
Abell 2142 is six million light years across and is one of the most
massive objects in the universe, containing hundreds of galaxies.
MARTIAN meteorites PROVIDE ATMOSPHERIC DATA, BUT NO EVIDENCE OF LIFE
Detailed examinations of meteorites of Martian origin determined
that the atmospheric processes causing abundant sulfur on the Martian
surface are similar to those in Earth's atmosphere. Sadly, these
findings by San Diego researchers show that the variations in sulfur
isotopes are not due to biological processes, despite earlier hopes
that the samples might contain evidence of life on Mars.
